One of the first books that were printed in Slavuta! Zohar Chadash, by the Divine Tana Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, Slavuta, [1793]. Rare. 

Sefer Zohar Chadash, on Chamisha Chumshei Torah and Chamesh Megilos and Tikkunim and Midrash haNe’elam. Slavuta, [1793]. Rare. 

The famed Slavuta printery was established by the holy Rav Rabbi Moshe Shapiro of Slavuta, the son of the holy Rav Rabbi Pinchas of Koretz. Was famed for the quality of its books, which were rare and praiseworthy. The importance and virtue of books printed by the famed Slavuta printery are well-known. The printery became famous also due to the false accusations against the holy brothers, Rabbi Shmuel Abba and Rabbi Pinchas Shapiro, the grandsons of the holy Rav Rabbi Pinchas of Koretz, which caused them to be imprisoned for seventeen years. This Sefer Zohar Chadash was one of the first books that were printed by the printery in its first years (one of the first five books that it printed!).
